5. Write a poem
Roses are red, violets are blue, anyone can write a poem, but can you? Poems are easy to write if you just have a little bit of time and imagination. Sit with your child and brainstorm ideas for a holiday poem. We'll help you get started:
Easy: Try writing an acrostic poem. Ask your child to choose a word, such as holiday, and write it vertically. Each letter will begin another word that describes the holiday.
H appy faces in our house
O ffer presents to everyone
L ove is all around
I cicles hang from the roof
D ad lights the fire
A ll the beautiful decorations
Y es, it's the holidays
Intermediate: Try writing a diamante poem. The text forms the shape of a diamond. Ask your child to choose a word, such as winter. Line 1 contains one noun or subject, line 2 contains two adjectives that describe line 1, line 3 contains three -ing words that describe line 1, line 4 contains four nouns - the first two are connected with line 1; the last two are connected with line 7, line 5 contains three -ing words that describe line 7, line 6 contains two adjectives that describe line 7, and line 7 contains one noun antonym for the subject.
Challenging: Try writing a shape poem. Ask your child to choose a word, such as snowman. Then, make a simple outline of that shape or object. Next, brainstorm a minimum of ten words and phrases that describe that word. Be sure you place those words in the shape of your object.
